Field days feature local landowners’ habitat enhancement projects


Fri, Sep 27th, 2013
Posted in Rushford Agriculture

Two field days to be held on October 12 and 26 in the Rushford/Houston area will provide landowners with information on the options for habitat enhancement, how to protect and restore rare features of southeast Minnesota’s landscape, the plan development process, and the practices and costs involved.

The field days will be from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 12 at the Joel Johnson farm, 21600 River Drive, Houston, Minn., and 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 26 at the Marlene Schueler-Christensen farm, 43809 County Road 17, Rushford, Minn.

Presenters include Joel Johnson and Marlene Schueler-Christensen (local landowners), Zach Reusch (Private Forester), Jaime Edwards (DNR Nongame Specialist), DNR Forestry and others. They will share information about the steps involved with the prairie and oak savanna restoration efforts at each location. Attendees will benefit from the expert knowledge of foresters and other natural resource specialists, hear the landowners’ experience, and get answers to the following questions:

Why plan my conservation activities?

How do I improve a prairie?

How do I help my forest become more productive?

How can I manage invasive species in sensitive areas?

Anyone with an interest in enhancing forest, prairie or other natural features on their land is welcome. The Root River Watershed Landscape Committee is hosting the field days to show the benefits of Stewardship Planning. Snacks will be provided. RSVP preferred but not required by contacting the Fillmore Soil and Water Conservation District at 507-765-3878 ext. 3 or email donna.rasmussen@fillmoreswcd.org.
